Dear SPP 1500 Members,
We would like to invite you to a one-day workshop "RAP day" on May 24, 2012 in Karlsruhe.
The Resilience Articulation Point (RAP) model , first proposed in the SPP 1500 meeting on July 2011 in Stuttgart, represents the correlated bit flips between the domains of technology and hardware/software systems. Dr. Sani Nassif (IBM), one of the initiators of this RAP model, will also be present at the workshop to discuss the current progress and future improvement of this model.
The tentative topics of this workshop are as following:
1. To present the various work of RAP model in the collaborated projects of SPP 1500; several SPP PhD students who visited IBM in Austin will also present their modeling work on aging, process variation at gate and device level;
2. Discussion on the possible collaboration between low-level modeling (e.g. circuit level) work and high-level application (e.g. architecture level);
3. A plan of how/when to get this modeling work published.
The representatives from architecture/software projects are also welcome to participate and discuss what you want from the RAP model and how it can be used in your projects.
In case you are interested in the topics listed above, please notify your participation by replying this email to facilitate our preparation. In addition, we would appreciate the contribution to the workshop if you can email back the title and short abstract of your planned presentation till the end of April.
Thanks for your attention and we are looking forward to seeing you in Karlsruhe.
